Clearances Over Swimming Pools

Clarification on clearances over pools depends upon certain conditions described in the attachments. :smiley:

Guess the attachment was wrong…:wink:

Anyway Guys…22.5’ over the pool…14.5’ over the diving board, stands and towers per say and it encompasses 10’ around the pool area…any more detail than that visit Article 680.8 Table 680.8 of the good ole’ NEC.

Bump…Reality Check…

???Specific image…nothing to do with the basics of clearance as posted…an isolated image does not explain the clearances needed for general pool areas.

Thread Jacked by the ENFORCER go to the following site, simply unbelievable!

Mike Holt has some good pool information (download).

The information and graphics can be used in a report if needed, simply by asking him.


No, you were first because you posted this before I did in another thread!

Thanks and pictures always help if you have any.

I can go out in my backyard and take a picture of my low voltage lighting to close to the Pool edge, but I really don’t feel like it…:smiley:

If I knew I could have taken the picture, I was in the Biltmore area last week!

I walked over to the mall where they were remodiling and took a few pictures to add to my library of over 50,000!
